The classic taper candle was the very first candle to be dipped in Ester & Erik production, and even though this was more than 30 years ago, it continues to be their best-selling candle by far. The candle’s fine, pointed top has always made it unique – a distinctive feature from which it derives the elegant, slender look that distinguishes it as an ester & erik candle.
Material: The candle is made of 100% pure fragrance-free paraffin wax from Europe’s leading producer. The candle is produced at our factory in Denmark, and the wick is made of 100% cotton.
Foot: The foot of the candle is conical in shape, which means that the candle fits most candle holders.
Self-extinguishing: The candle is self-extinguishing, so the flame dies out 2-3 centimeters from the bottom (however, we recommend to never leave lit candles unattended).
Extinguishing guide: We recommend using a candle extinguisher to extinguish the candle. This avoids smoke, and ensures that the candle is completely extinguished, thus preventing the wick from smouldering. A candle extinguisher will completely extinguish the burning wick, so the wick remains intact.
For candles with a lacquer, gold or silver coating, it is important – after putting out the candle with an extinguisher – to remove the outermost layer of lacquer from the depression around the wick so that the candle can be relit without any difficulty.
Candle-burning tips: To ensure that the candle burns in the best possible way, we recommend keeping the wick short, placing candles min. 10 cm apart, and avoiding placing candles in draughts or above a radiator.
